Sewer Gas Smell
Asked Aug 11, 2005, 08:48 AM
We have been having a problem with a bad smell that we think is sewer gas coming up through the shower drain when we flush the toilet in our back bathroom. We're not having the problem anywhere else in the house and at first we only noticed the smell, like I said, when we flushed that toilet. The last couple of days now, I am noticing the smell in there all the time and it seems to be getting stronger. We have a mechanical treatment type sewer system with an aerator pump and I called the installer first but they said it's not a problem with the sewer system and that we should contact a plumber. After reading old threads I did run water in that drain but it doesn't seem to help. I now seem to be noticing the smell in the sink of that bathroom, too. Any suggestions?
